“It hit the spot not gonna lie.”

The salad consisted of what appeared to be chopped iceberg lettuce, diced unknown tomatoes, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

This particular stoner chose an Italian dressing.

“I had the pretzel sticks and an ice cream brownie thing the pretzels were really good. They only give you three but it was enough for me.” They devoured three spoonfuls between thoughts.

“Eating out vegetarian can be hard but there’s always dessert.”
